CLIMATE.

The summer temperatures can go to over 40°c in the day but we are at around 1000m so occasionally the weather can turn a little cool.

The early mornings in particular in late May early June can be a little fresh. Summer heat can bring on quite violent thunderstorms.

Bearing this in mind it may be prudent to bring more than shorts, tee shirt and sandals – ideally long lightweight trousers, a couple of fleeces and a waterproof top and trainers.

A good quality 3- season sleeping bag will make your sleep more enjoyable. There are plenty of supermarkets, restaurants, bars and garages.

If you do forget a couple of items its no big deal.

There is also a pharmacist, clinic and hospital close by.

LIST OF USEFUL THINGS TO BRING:

  • Keep your valuables with you at all times, or lock them away securely.
  • Don't forget your E111 also take out travel and accident insurance.
  • A small first aid kit is use full as well as any special medicine for yourself or your family.
  • Insect repellent and after bite - the area where we are located is not troubled by summer midges; however on warm summer evenings we do some times get a couple of mosquitoes. If you cover up a little and use a little spray there is no problem.
  • A good head torch for night reading
  • Mobile phone service is excellent.
  • We also have a wireless connection.
  • We are at high altitude so there is a high percentage of UV and the sun is very intense. Your UK skin could be quite sensitive so use good sun protection.
  • Because it can be very warm it is very important to drink plenty of water.
  • Again because of the sun and altitude very good quality sunnies are recommended.
  • Good book, ipod, cameras etc
